      Bridging Economic Reconciliation - Acting on TRC#92

      What does reconciliation mean, how can the economy be better with reconciliation, what organizations are doing their part, and what can be done for those that are new to the reconciliation process?     Chief Darcy Bear, Whitecap Dakota First Nation, and Tribal Chief Mark Arcand, Saskatoon Tribal Council, are leading this conference to address these issues. Speakers include leaders from industry, finance, education, government and Indigenous communities. BRIDGING ECONOMIC RECONCILIATION is a business development event addressing how we can learn from successful partnerships between Saskatchewan businesses and institutions, and the Indigenous community, while providing a meeting place to network and form new synergies. The event features a wide range of innovative ideas that can improve your business and open untapped markets.
